811-12OR: 119

Began well over fences with a debut success at Ayr (3m, good) in beginners' company in May. He was fresh that day, so the break since is of no concern. Cheekpieces added. Should go well back over hurdles.

511-10OR: 117BF

3lb higher than when scoring over fences at Fontwell in June (2m5½f, good). Won from a higher mark than this over hurdles last year and wth 5lb claimed here, he may be capable of doing better back in this sphere than his more recent efforts.

511-8OR: 115

Won a Huntingdon novices' hurdle this time last year. Yet to win a handicap, but still early days. If he can run to the form of his Warwick outing in the spring, or better, he could come into this from 3lb lower. Interesting.

411-7OR: 114

Won a 1m3½f maiden handicap on the Flat in June (rated 60 in that code). Showed promise in a Huntingdon maiden hurdle in March. Backward step over this trip next time and initial mark looks stiff enough.

711-3OR: 110C

Won a 2m½f novices' chase here in June, from 4lb lower. Should be competitive from this mark back over hurdles, but needs improvement strictly on the figures.

Toddb,t17
810-13OR: 106BFCD

6lb higher than when scoring at Worcester (2m4f, good) last month. Never travelled last time at Southwell, but a 10lb claim here could help him bounce right back.

8
1110-9OR: 102CD

Does not look to have been the easiest to train and ended a three-year drought when scoring at Cartmel in July from 7lb lower. Beaten over 9L from this mark last time, but has each-way claims at least.

Betting

Forecast

Canyon City (6/4), Miles To Milan (3/1), I See You Well (11/2), Master Of Finance (7/1), Todd (9/1), Stags Leap (10/1), Max Liebermann (22/1), Supakalanistic (SP)

Verdict

Back over hurdles, MILES TO MILAN is probably capable of winning this with cheekpieces to add a little extra fizz over this shorter trip. Stablemate Todd was very flat last time, but he could have a say again here with 10lb claimed, while the unexposed Canyon City is also of interest. I See You Well, Master Of Finance and Stags Leap are others who could claim some prize money if things drop right.
